DEBORAH & CHI-DANCE
Deborah began her life-long love affair with dancing at the age of four,
training and performing throughout her childhood in ballet and rhythmic gymnastics.
Both disciplines gave her a comprehensive knowledge and understanding
of the body as an instrument of lyrical expression.
So, when Deborah found her way to the study of Tai Chi at the age of 18,
she intuitively grasped the philosophy of chi as an energy force
created from the dance of the Yin and Yang principles.
Since then, she has dedicated her life
to the study and exploration of this ancient Chinese practice
in the development of mind, body, and spirit, integrating it with her passion for dance.
In 2016, Deborah created a unique synthesis of Tai-Chi and free dance
into a joyful form of meditation in motion called Chi-Dance.
In Chi-Dance, Deborah helps us create a connection
with the dancing life energy of chi that is both grounded and free-flowing at the same time,
filling the mind, body, and spirit with the awareness and freedom of the present moment,
that wellspring of joy and contentment in the here and now.
With gentle encouragement, Deborah guides us to that expansive space within,
where the echoes of old ideas and beliefs that dance must look beautiful,
right, good or any particular way can no longer be heard from their place within our minds.
Instead, Chi-Dance invites us to that unbounded place within our hearts
where we may fully engage in creative movement
with the impulses of the ever-changing divine life force.
